My Makeup Collection

I’m a hoarder. There, I said it.

I keep makeup that’s years old because I don’t want to throw it away. There’s no reason to keep dried up mascara, aged chalky eyeshadows or gunky nail polish. I sat myself down and had a word with myself and realised that I was holding on to stuff that I couldn’t even use if I wanted to.

So, with great reluctance, I threw out everything that was questionably old, I hadn’t used in more than 3 months and stuff that was looking a bit worse for wear. This left me with a dresser drawer full of lovely makeup products (and a really old No.7 blusher/bronzer that I love to death and can’t bear to part with) that I use on the regular.


As you can see, the Benefit box is empty as I hated everything but the concealers, and now it’s used to store little

  1. Just stumbled across your blog! I love looking at people’s makeup collections. I had myself quite a collection over the summer, several boxes worth (and lots of paychecks worth Lol) and then I left it at the hotel over vacation. 😦
